My name is Steve Howery and I’ll be filling in for Judy in worship and pastoral care while she is on medical leave. I’d like to tell you a little about myself. I am a native Illini. I was born in Chicago and graduated from Libertyville High School. I was confirmed in Libertyville’s First Presbyterian Church.
I graduated from Indiana University, Bloomington, with a degree in religious studies and received my M.Div. from Princeton Theological Seminary.
I served churches in New Jersey, Texas and Louisiana before returning to Illinois to serve as pastor of Niles Community Church in 2001. I retired from that position in 2018.
I live in Glenview with my wife, Carol, where we enjoy gardening, cooking and entertaining. I enjoy playing music with my friends (mostly rock) and from time to time feel inspired to write a song or two.
We each have two grown children and now three granddaughters.
I’m looking forward to getting to know you in the days ahead.
